Request power saving for Mechwarrior 5 non fighting scene

Hi, scenes before actual game play fight battle are drawing maximum power 300 watts, can the developers code into the drivers to enforce power saving during these scenes?

728 = page 1 = 11w 14fps OK

389 = page 2 = 11w 59fps ok

070 = page 3 = 8w 78fps ok

472 = page 4 = 300w 90fps NOT OK power wasted 

359 = page 5 = 301w 87fps NOT OK power wasted

289 = page 6 = 275w 64fps NOT OK power wasted

806 = page 6 roated = 288w 68fps NOT OK power wasted

405 = page 7 = 297w 75fps NOT OK power wasted

294 = page 8 = 298w 68fps NOT OK power wasted

872 = page 9 = 297w 65fps NOT OK power wasted, all text only, no 3D, 3D buried under.

592 = page 10 = 229w 192fps high frame rate wasted. NOT OK power wasted, all text only, no 3D worth. Should just be a 2D map.

402 = page 11 = 274w 185fps high frame rate wasted. NOT OK power wasted,

483 = page 12 = 275w 177fps high frame rate wasted. NOT OK power wasted,

484 = page 13 = 299w 87fps NOT OK power wasted 

804 = page 14 = 295w 140fps high frame rate wasted. NOT OK power wasted,

748 = page 15 = 264w 66fps NOT OK power wasted,

353 = page 16 = 267w 59fps NOT OK power wasted,

071 = page 17 = 298w 41fps NOT OK power wasted,

861 = alt-tab out to radeon page = 293w 1fps, NO 3D but MW5 running in background still drawing power. Should not be like this. I thought some form of work done less and hence power usage less. 

107 = actual game play = 294w 78fps - high power usage accepted, but frame rate not impressive is another story.

449 = game finished = 295w 66fps NOT OK power wasted,

361 = game finished = 261w 36fps NOT OK power wasted,

 

 

Another note, power usage high, but high frame rate not achieved !!! need optimization.

 

my monitor is freesync resolution is 2560 x 1440, Vega_64 custom water cool. Ryzen 1700x.
